Big Bird and Big Girl Bed

Seems like it has been a while since I last posted but that is not due to the lack of things going on....seems like we have too much going on sometimes.  Ok a little catch-up.    Two weekends ago we took Grace to see the Sesame Street Elmo Live Show.  She absolutely loved it.  Seeing Elmo in the flesh fur was so exciting she fell to sleep for the last 5 minutes of the show.  Unfortunately she wasn't too happy when she woke up and Elmo was gone.  All in all a pretty good day.

Last time I posted Grace was recovering from a slight case of pnemonia.  A few days after she finished her antibiotics for the pnemonia her fever came back.  So we were back to the doctor with a diagnosis of an ear infection and another 10 days of antibiotics.  

This weekend was a much anticipated event in our household.  We converted Grace's crib to a big girl bed.  We have one of those cribs that convert to a full size bed so we let Grace help us take the crib apart and attach the rails.  Then mommy locked herself in the room and put all of the pretty bedding on.  The video below is Grace's reaction to seeing her big girl bed for the first time.

All went really well at bedtime, she went right to sleep and slept well through the night until about 4am, when Jen heard her coughing and went in to find Grace vomiting all over herself, the new bedding and eventually Jen.  Fun times!!!  So Grace spent the rest of the night in bed with us.  We will give it another shot tonight, hopefully with better results.  Some more pics below of Grace trying out her new bed.

As long is everyone is healthy next weekend we are planning to attend the CAWLI Chinese New Year party.  Looking forward to seeing our travel mates and others so if you will be there leave us a comment so we know to be looking for you.

I enjoyed getting to see Grace in the video, she's so adorable! Sorry to hear that first night didn't go as planned with the sickness, but hopefully the transition to big girl bed is working out well for you guys! Hope she's feeling better.

Aww.. So cute- Like always. =)

..Is it a 3/4 - dbl bed? I remember.. I got a double bed when I was.. 2 or 3. My brothers were always jealous because they're older than me, and they always had twin-beds. ^^ I still have that bed today, at nearly 14 years old.

Grace + Her New Bed = FTW!
